About Lock & Key:
Love not only stings when you lose it, when it’s ripped away, but when it first sinks its teeth into you, it can cut just as raw and sting just as deep.
Unfortunately, I had forgotten that.
I was allegedly South Dakota's most famous Old Lady.
Fifteen years ago I had survived my Old Man’s murder and swore to myself never again.
Never again surrender my heart.
Never again sacrifice to the Club.
But that all changed in one night.
I came home and crashed into him,
and my past and present blew up in my face.
Both of us lonely, running on empty, and unwilling to admit it.
I feel things I'd forgotten about, want things I had cut out of my insides.
Who holds the keys to betrayal?
To a bleeding heart?
Right now, I just might.
I suppose some of us have to get really dirty before we can become truly clean.
I love biker books- the ones that are done right. And let me tell you... this one was done right. I was hooked from the prologue and couldn’t put it down. One forty something heroine. Two heroes- one from her past and one from her present. This is their story. A story about love, loss and redemption. About family and friends, sacrifice and loyalty. And a secret Grace has kept for sixteen years...
This is a story of my love for two men at two different moments of truth in my live.
One man is gone forever; the other is very much alive.
Love not only stings when you lose it, when it’s ripped away from you.
When it first bites, it can sting just as deeply.
Grace never thought she would find love again. Not the kind of love she had with Jake ‘Dig’ Quillen. Her first and only love, her Old Man, her husband. Then she met Miller aka Lock. Things were different with him than with any other guy she’d been with.
I don’t want to go into too much detail here, but there is a lot of things going on... Things with Grace’s sister, Ruby. Things with Grace’s past and her old man. Things in the present going on with the club. There are some twists and turns, and some shocking revelations. Just when I thought I had everything figured out something new would come to light that made me question what I had thought.
This is a fantastic book with a lot of STORY to tell.
I seriously love books with older heroes/heroines. I love YA/NA etc, but sometimes it’s nice to read about people not in their teens and twenties. I loved that there was romance here, but it was so much more than that. It was a biker book, so of course there was some grit. There was a good amount of action and suspense. The steam was off the charts. The times Miller and Grace were together... wow!
Overall, this was an enjoyable and entertaining read. If you’re looking for a great MC book with a strong and kick ass older heroine and a tall dark and handsome biker, pick this one up! But expect much more than ‘just another biker book’. Because it is so much more than that!
Since then I have told everyone I know to put this book on their short list!! This book was great! The character build out - fantastic. The plot awesome. The dual POV and the Past & Present aspect - HOLY AMAZE BALLS. I read this book from cover to cover in practically one sitting.
Cat Porter did the world a good deed writing this story. THANK YOU CAT.
